Historical Perspectives on Contemporary East Asia by Merle Goldman

Book Description

In this essays, distinguished scholars of modern east Asia distil from long years of research interpretive accounts of late 19th- and 20th-century China, Japan, and Korea. They describe particular features of the modern experience of east Asian countries. At the same time, they address some common themes. One of these themes is the impact of the West on China, Japan, and Korea and the different ways in which each of these countries resisted western imperialism while trying to adapt their traditional cultures to the West. Each also sought to integrate itself into a global economic and diplomatic system. another overarching theme that these essays stress is the role of nationalism as a powerful motivating force in these countries' modern development. New students of Asian affairs as well as long-time specialists will value the insights and overview of the political, social, economic, cultural, and international issues described for this important area of the world.

From Comrade to Citizen by Merle Goldman From Comrade to Citizen, Paperback (September 2007)

Examines the changing relationship between the Chinese people and the state. Correcting the conventional view of China as having instituted extraordinary economic changes but having experienced few political reforms in the post-Mao period, the author details efforts by individuals and groups to assert their political rights.

Grassroots Political Reform in Contemporary China by Merle Goldman Grassroots Political Reform in Contemporary China, Paperback (March 2007)

Explores a range of grassroots efforts - initiated by the state and society alike - intended to restrain arbitrary and corrupt official behaviour and enhance the accountability of local authorities. This book covers topics such as village and township elections, fiscal reforms, legal aid, media supervision, and informal associations.

China by Merle Goldman China, Paperback (April 2006)
